Tim Atkin Report: Top Rated – 96 Points
Leeu PassantStellenbosch Chardonnay 2019
Availability: 8 in stock
This Chardonnay has aromas of white pear, yellow grapefruit and a hint of Mebos [salted dried apricot]. The vibrant palate delivers notes of Key lime sorbet and just ripe nectarine, which is followed by layers of stone-fruit and lemon curd. The touch of salinity and a most subtle adornment of oak, are well balanced by a zesty acidity, leading up to a beautifully poised and defined finish. Best served at 10-12?C, this wine will show optimally when decanted within the first 3 years after bottling and will reward if cellared properly over 10 years.
